Betty and Carl Pforzheimer Donate $250,000 to the Advocacy
A substantial donation of $250,000 is being given to the Advocacy by Betty and Carl Pforzheimer in honour and in memory of Glenn Irvine, a co-founder of our charity. The Pforzheimers have been important benefactors of the Advocacy since its inception and their magnanimity during the past 17 years has been invaluable. This meaningful contribution will have a wide-ranging impact on the charity’s objective to unravel the causes of NA and to find treatments and a cure. The proceeds of the gift will be applied toward funding the new Glenn Irvine Prize and will help greatly in defraying the significant and continuing expense involved in funding NA research.
The Pforzheimer’s graciousness will serve as a long-lasting tribute to Glenn Irvine who devoted many years looking for therapies and a cure for this rare group of diseases and who cherished his friendship with the donors. The Advocacy wishes to acknowledge with the deepest gratitude both the generosity of this pledge and the Pforzheimer’s commitment to support NA patients.
